Left unchecked or treated incorrectly, diabetes mellitus can not only disrupt your quality of life but may also result in life-threatening complications. Our team uses cutting-edge medical technology called regenerative medicine platelet-rich plasma injections.
Type 2 Diabetes
Glucose is your brain's main source of fuel and a vital source of energy for cells that make up your muscles and tissue. Your body requires insulin to allow glucose from the bloodstream into the cells. If your body can't process glucose, you may develop diabetes.
There are two forms of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition, where your body’s defense system destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It's commonly diagnosed in youth but can also develop in your late 30s and early 40s. But type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease.
You develop Type 2 diabetes if your pancreas doesn't make enough insulin, or the insulin your body produces doesn't function properly. Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, too much sugar in the blood leads to serious health complications. It's vital that you find solutions to help you manage your sugar.
Often, diabetes is accompanied by symptoms that range from irritating to painful, and they depend on how high your blood sugar has elevated. If you have diabetes, you may notice:
- Unexplained thirst
- Extreme hunger
- Unexplained weight loss
- Frequent urination
- Presence of ketones in the urine (emit a distinct sweet smell)
- Blurred vision
- Slow-healing wounds
- Frequent gum or skin infections
Neuropathy, a nerve disorder, is one of the most common symptoms of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes often experience nerve damage in organ systems, including the digestive system, urinary tract, sex organs, blood vessels, and heart.
Our team combines multiple treatment methods to achieve immediate relief and lasting results from the symptoms of diabetes.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Our PRP injections are another safe and effective procedure to treat diabetes, accelerating the repair of injured tissues and infections caused by diabetes. Platelet-rich plasma, synthesized from your blood, is injected into the body to stimulate your natural ability to heal.
We also offer chiropractic care, which can relieve a wide variety of symptoms and aches associated with diabetes, such as migraines and backaches. Our chiropractor is also practiced in treating neuropathy this way. Neuropathy is a malfunction in the nerves and is associated with diabetes. Correct spinal alignment, achieved after an adjustment, will help relieve the pressure on your nerves and allow your nervous system to communicate more freely.
